Heitz Wine Cellars

Cabernet Sauvignon
Howell Mountain

5 cases produced


Our winemaker has created a beautiful Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon that is one-of-a-kind, yet distinctively Heitz Wine Cellars. We combined pristine fruit from the sweeping upper slopes of Heitz Ink Grade Vineyard with the luscious grapes grown at Heitz's prized Linda Falls acreage. The result is a wine that eloquently reflects the purity and rich complexity of the Cabernet varietal as well as the unparalleled sense of place that is the Napa Valley.
